i hate 2 say it, but our bench this week is the worst iv ever seen! any arguments?
Sad...... ..yet maybe true - this Buhrer is the goods & really deserves to start but the other 3 possibly sit the bench in NSW Cup.Â
Seu Seu is fine,i actually would rather see him at 5/8 with Foran at centre,because T Rex is not a centre or a back
This guy had massive wraps early on at Newcastle & i expected him to be explosive from dummy half - yet to seu seu it. In actual fact when he is on the team loses its way & he gives little direction - hope he proves me wrong but so far......
totally agree matt, buhrer deserves his spot is a star of the future. i rekon he we really kick on this year, as for the other 3 not 1st graders.
Maybe a bench of majouli, Lussick, Buhrer and Cunningham? Â
They want a bit of mongril on the bench tooks. If that means blooding a player or 2, so be it.
obviously too young to remember the norths benches
Its not too bad.. I'm sure I've seen worse. Seu Seu is there as the hooker rotation substitute Beuhrer played well in Wk 1 and is in for a good season Robinson I've never seen play, but looks to have size (when standing next to Daniel Harrison) Mauro, I wasn't impressed with in wk 1 or during his stints off the bench in previous seasons, maybe we should have given another young gun a shot here, Lussick, if he wasn't injured.
Mauro in the team shows everyone how desperate we are George Rose starting is embarrassing based on what he has shown us Kite looks as though he is struggling with the pace of the game Robinson is on debut, so he should be given time to impress Buhrer is (at this stage) and average backrower that wouldn't make most teams Seu Seu seems to choke in every important game, and thrive in unimportant ones like QLD Cup Choc can't catch if his life depended on him Galuvao is just too old and beat up now Glenn Stewart is the one standout, but he still looks fat and looks as though the sparks gone
I'll have to agree with you on Mauro and Rose. Kite, Ringrust as some people have put it, was rnd 1 and he wasn't fully up to speed yet Buhrer, I saw him hit a gap in the 2nd half that I haven't seen a backrower hit since the Beaver. As soon as I saw this, I knew the kid has potential. Chocdrops is getting to the WTF, this is ret@rded categor.., seriously I've seen better handling skills in U/7's Galuvao would be much better as impact off the bench Gift will pick up the form in the next few weeks
Some of us remember them only too well. Peter Mayoh, freddy teadsdell, Gary Munday and Brett Gale. Â

I was about to post the exact same topic. The first 13 is also very average. Gonn be a long year me thinks. Hopefully in a couple of years we will look back and say "how good was that bench".
I have seen worse. Look at the Sharks. Or look at what we used to have with Shipway Dorn Mullane and the other bunch of A grade players
Its a young bench. Im not sure how many of you can say much about robinson. Have you seen him play I still have faith that once seu seu gets a regular gig he will be better Buhrer looked great and Mauro is stready The bench lacks impact but im not really expecting Rose or Joe both to start. With robinson and burher starting the bench looks better and so does the starting pack for mine Des wont name a debut front rower on tuesday
Good point James.
Worst topic ever. How about we reserve our judgement till Sunday afternoon after we see these guys perform. I don't see the point in laying in the boot when one of them hasn't even played an NRL game for Manly yet. If they all play ****house on Sunday, we then will be able to say (and I'm sure plenty will) that they were the worst bench ever.
The told you so people will be back here bragging how good a judge they are
last year was ''How bad we were playing, this year its ''why havent we recruited and we look like the Northern Eagles'' i believe the fans are the ones with the grand final hangover ! that form was 3 years ago, it takes approximately 5-6 years to rebuild. It may look like a bad bench but really im over complaining !
